The 15-Minute Writer: The Secret to My Productivity

15 min

At last! I’ve finally created a course that shows how I manage to be so productive. And it’s NOT about time management. The 15-Minute Writer was created to show you how you can be a prolific writer, even if you only have 15 minutes at a time to work on your book, blog post, or any other writing-related task.

Here’s the code: https://www.udemy.com/the-15-minute-writer/?couponCode=nhw

Let me know how you like the course – please leave a review if it works for you. And definitely tell me how you decided to use your tiny bits of free time!
